Yelich started Milwaukee’s rally with a two-out RBI single off the glove of shortstop Paul DeJong in the fifth. The Brewers pulled within one on RBI singles for Travis Shaw and Jonathan Villar in the eighth.
Fowler has nine career homers against Milwaukee, his second-most against any opponent. Pham has six career home runs against the Brewers, all at Miller Park. Ozuna collected his 10th home run, a 479-foot blast, at Miller Park, his most in any ballpark other than Marlins Park.
Flaherty kept the Brewers guessing with a two-seam and four-seam fastball and a nasty slider in his sixth career start in seven appearances. He was recalled March 28 from Triple-A Memphis when Wainwright was placed on the DL.

Also chipping in was Andujar, their new starter at third with Drury out indefinitely due to severe migraine headaches and blurry vision that will lead to a full day’s worth of medical exams come Monday. Playing his fourth game since a call-up last Sunday as an injury replacement for Billy McKinney, who had been an injury replacement for Aaron Hicks, Andujar was 1-for-3 with a tie-breaking sac fly after coming into the game 0-for-12 for the season.

Making his second start, Torreyes came up big, too, going 3-for-4 with two runs scored hitting in the nine hole, and Austin ended an 0-for-10 slump by going 2-for-4 with a two-run single in the seventh that stretched the Yankees’ lead to Authentic Jeff Heuerman Jersey five.
Meantime, right-hander Sonny Gray (1-0) worked a pretty decent three-run, six-inning outing.
